Thousands of cyclists swarmed a busy London junction in protest against the deaths of two of their fellow riders.

Swarms of people flocked to the Bank junction, outside the Bank of England, on the evening of Monday, June 29 as they staged a vigil and die-in following the deaths of two more cyclists.

One of those being remembered by protestors was Clifton James, who died after a collision with a car in Forward Drive, Harrow, at just gone midnight on Sunday, June 21 as he pedalled home from work.

Donnachadh McCarthy, co-founder and co-organiser, said: “It was a huge privilege to have been part of the team of amazing volunteers who staged the Stop Killing Cyclists Die-In.

“This image is the one we dreamed of making that would send out a powerful loud silent roar across the world, from the historic centre of the City of London, that we want our mayor and boroughs to make London’s streets fit for humans.”
